lyrics

You’re really doin’ some bang-up policework
You ripped the whole damn garden out
You got the rats out of your corn
And let the vampires in your house
You got a bug for son and daughter
To always know the time and place
And it don’t seem all that crazy
Just the way the world is run today
You say it's just the way the world is run today
And it don’t seem all that strange

You’re really doin’ some bang-up policework
You’re gonna sweep up all the mess
All the streets look good on camera
Citizens under arrest
You’re watchin’ too much television
You’re waitin’ for the lights to change
Let ‘em search, serve ‘em coffee
Just the way the world is run today
You say it's just the way the world is run today
And it don’t seem all that strange

You’re really doin’ some bang-up policework
Ever think about becoming a cop?
Bang bang, shoot ‘em up
It’s giving them an easy job
Another chapter in dominion
Another ripped out history page
A job ain’t hard if you do it for them
Half the battle won for them today
When you say: it’s just the way the world is run today
And it don’t seem all that strange

Ever think about becoming a cop?

Mischief Brew Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
